The Memphis Jug Band was one of the most popular musical groups of the late 1920's and early 1930's and arguably the most important jug band in the history of the blues. Born in Memphis in 1894, Will Shade (also known as Son Brimmer) was the founder of the Memphis Jug Band. After performing around Memphis and touring with medicine shows for a few years, Shade formed the group in the mid-1920's. Show notes: http://sundayblues.org/?p=4650
